Monday double whammy

I had quite a productive weekend, and I have two killer projects
to share with you today.

First up is my HDH Macabre Monday Poe inspired project.    
How can you go wrong with a crackle effect portrait of Edgar for starters?
It can only get better from here on out.

I went with an overall graveyard theme for this project.
Poe's writings seem to follow the theme of death and mourning. Obsessively so.    

I used a Tim Holtz quill nib and attached it to a black (Raven) feather.
I also used the graveyard die from Quickutz for the bottom border.  

I cut out the letters for Poe using the Haunted mini alphabet from Quickutz.
I used a Sakura stardust pen to add some sparkle without the use of glitter.
Poe wouldn't approve of glitter.

Lastly, I popped the panel into a shadow box frame.
Very pleased with this one.
Please join us over at HDH for our Poe inspired challenge.

And then next is my project for the challenge at Forever Friends.
Forever Friends is having an anything goes challenge, and are 
being sponsored by Rick St. Dennis.

I made a sweet Valentine card for my husband.

I used the awesome Zombie Soft Centers image from Rick St. Dennis.
What a handsome guy! 

I took advantage of the opportunity to use Glossy Accents on the soft and chewy bits in the heart shaped box. 
Had to go for the glistening, wet look here.   

And more Glossy Accents on Mister Zombie's big blue eyes.
Something tells me this guy can really make your eyes water.

Thanks for dropping by today.
I hope you get a chance to visit Haunted Design House 
and Forever Friends as well.

Keep it Creepy!!
